Intellectual and moral bankruptcy? Dec 1, 2013 1204
Shame on church schools selling out: once there were standards, genuine standards. The puppeteered ministry of miseducation has seen to removing these. But worse, the compliance of what should be genuinely conservative organisations who used to know what standards were--such as the church schools--has let us all down. Oct 1, 2013 1182
A shocking state of affairs. Aug 1, 2013 1201

The growing cult of bullying: when Alexander Solzhenitsyn concluded the West has gone soft, I don't recall anyone contesting this. Is it our directions? Our way of life? Our standards and values? Our codes of morality? Or that so few now stand up to be counted on the issues of the day? Apr 1, 2013 1157
Nobody jumps higher than self-serving MPs: it was a shocking admission--almost worse in that Nick Smith, Nelson's National Party MP, was apparently boasting when he recently stated: "I'm the old-fashioned type: when the Prime Minister says jump, I say how high. It is the only way a political party can operate.". Feb 1, 2013 1172
Lording it over others: the title brought me up short: Power and Greed, A Short History of the World, by Philippe Gigantes. Where human society has gone wrong from the beginning of recorded history can certainly be subsumed into these two categories, power and greed. Dec 1, 2012 1170
"Who will free us from the yoke of Western civilisation?" One of the most culpable things about the blatant untruths parents have been told about how well our children have been doing in schools, and what a great education system we have, is that supposedly international standards have been used to "prove" we are right up there near the top. Oct 1, 2012 1150
Time for reflection? Home thoughts from abroad. Aug 1, 2012 4711
The value of nothing: "the past can make people uncomfortable: many of those who survive from that strange place know more than us; they have seen more; their perspectives, most alarmingly, are different and cast doubt on the universal validity of our own". Aug 1, 2012 1172
